High TV 3D has announced the launch of its channel in another European country, Norway, on Canal Digital (Norway’s foremost provider of pay TV).
The channel is on air from today, and as you might guess from the name, it has an emphasis on 3D, apparently incorporating entertainment news, global travel programmes, movies and also drama, comedy and fitness shows.
Expect reality TV and lifestyle programmes, coverage of exotic holiday destinations, along with celebrity news and gossip.
In other words, all very fluffy and lightweight, with there unlikely to be any analysis of the Eurozone debt agreement. Although there possibly might be a small piece on where Angela Merkel went for her summer break this year (we’re sure it was somewhere nice, and probably not Greece).
Canal Digital has already broadcasted some pretty lofty sports coverage such as Wimbledon and the French Open in 3D, with CEO Petter Carlsen noting that “with the launch of High TV 3D our satellite customers will get access to three-dimensional television Entertainment around the clock.”
The CEO of High TV 3D, Eric Klein, commented: “It is indeed a major milestone for us, as an international 3D channel, to be present in Norway on the leading platform with the highest reach.”
“We are excited to be bringing the very best in lifestyle and entertainment programming to an audience that embraces entertainment as the very essence of their culture,” he added.
High TV 3D was founded in 2010, and boasts that it brings around 100 new shows and 400 fresh hours of broadcasting to viewers every year.
